Anyone know Bachmann Orient Express Set (HO)
Posted by Penn Central on Monday, August 2, 2021 9:50 PM

Hi, been looking at a couple of listings for this set online. Would love to own an orient express set that I could clean up, including interiors. The Bachmann has been the one I've seen most. Still a newbie, my concern is a model from the 80's may not work well? Wondering if anyone's had any experience with this set?

EDIT: I'm only interested in the coaches and not the engine and tender. Will these things roll ok is my concern

Hi Penn Central.    I do not know anything about the Bachmann Orient Express set,  but over here in the UK  if we buy old rolling stock that does not run well,  we rewheel them with modern wheels.

I have done that with my older stock and has solved the issues.
